1 CORBETT, Gail H. Barnardo Children in Canada.
Woodland Publishing, Peterborough, Ontario , 1981, ISBN:0969075103 
CORBETT, Gail H. Barnardo Children in Canada. (Peterborough, Ontario : Woodland Publishing, 1981). Pp [1]-133,(1). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, illustrated yellow card covers. “Barnardo Children in Canada by Gail Corbett unmasks the greatest human interest story in Canadian history : the pilgrimage of thousands of dependent children. This book sensitively and accurately records the largest and most successful child emigration into the emerging nation. Here is a modern Pilgrim's Progress whose main characters are tens of thousands of children who, against great odds, proved that Canada was the promised land. The author records first hand accounts of child emigration, archival materials never before released, directions for genealogical research and much more. [...] Today Barnardo Children and their descendants are legion, and as Dr. Thomas Barnardo predicted, his proteges stretch from sea to sea. They and their descendants are counted among Canada's greatest nation builders.” - from the back cover. Two tiny spots to fore-edge, lightly rubbed, else very good. 15.00
